Posing pouches….

As the temperature rises in the garden- so I retreat inside. But this does give me the opportunity to do a little sewing. This weekend I decided to reduce my fat quarter collection. I don’t know what happens to me when I walk into a fabric shop, but I can never resist the fat quarter boxes. The fabric then sits in a pile at the bottom of the wardrobe – but no longer! I have set to and made several ‘wee braw bags’ by Laura Zuckerkuss – they are just so quick and easy. Look away now if your birthday is coming up soon, or you are expecting something hand made at Christmas!! All I need now is to find a suitable cord for each bag.

My favourite combo was the Tula pink fabric…

My Christmas combo…

And I know someone who just loves a sloth… inside and out…

I also managed to finish my ‘end of term’ gift pouch….. and I am quite pleased with the result..

Last but not least…I started a new project, making a bag to hold all my goldwork bits and bobs. This was almost finished but just at the last minute I realised that I didn’t have any open ended zips which I need for the cover – so it will have to wait until next weekend!

Quite a productive weekend all in all… maybe next weekend I will be as productive with my canvas work!!!

Happy stitching everyone…

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....
